Disney Pixar Coco

Review: “Coco” – Music Is Life

by Weathermanon March 14, 2018
After 6 years and more awards that you can fit in a guitar case, Disney/Pixar’s Coco finally lands on Blu-ray/DVD. Should you buy it? Do you like good moves? Do you like Pixar movies? Do you like good Pixar movies? Ok, self-answering question, but yes, yes you should buy this. Whatever teething troubles Coco had […]
Thor: Ragnarok

Review: “Thor: Ragnarok” – Are We Not Men? No! We Are Asgard!

by Weathermanon March 9, 2018
Thor: Ragnarok is the….*tries to count* umpteenth movie in the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. Starring Thor, Loki, and a few other misbegotten members of the larger MCU cast, it somehow manages to be both surprisingly moving and overtly ridiculous at the same time. Is it perfect? No, there are some issues with pacing and I […]

Scrapped Princess

Review: “Scrapped Princess, The Complete Series” Makes a Good Case for Recycling Anime

by Weathermanon February 22, 2018
The past is prologue, the future is the past, whoever controls the present controls the past yadda yadda yadda. The point is that time isn’t always what we think it is. What would happen if someone messed around with the perception of time? Why would they? Would anyone try and stop them? Would anyone even […]
Ghost in the Shell (2017) Live-Action Blu-ray

Review: “Ghost in the Shell” (2017) – A Copy of a Copy of a Copy of a Copy of a….

by Weathermanon July 27, 2017
This is gonna sound really bizarre, but in the old old ooolllddd days of anime, you couldn’t watch something by clicking on a mouse button or putting a disc into a player or even really buying it. In the way way back of long long ago you had to get a tape, and frequently that […]

Garo

Review: “Garo: The Animation Season 1 Part 2” – Lock Up the Wolves

by Weathermanon May 26, 2017
When we last saw the Makai Knights in Garo: The Animation Season 1 Part 1, things were good and not so good. The villainous Mendoza had been deposed, though neither easily nor cheaply. German has left to continue his work cleaning up the last of the Horrors, Ema is just plain gone, and poor Alphonso […]

Review: “Garo: The Animation Season 1 Part 1” – Neon Knights

by Weathermanon May 25, 2017
Garo: The Animation concerns itself with one Leon Luis, orphan son of a witch (the magic using kind, not the generally-unpleasant-woman kind). Leon has issues. So so so many issues. He has no home, no friends, no living mom, and no actual dad. All he does have is a somewhat hedonistic guardian named German Luis. […]

Finding Dory

Review: “Finding Dory” – She Doesn’t Find a Lot of Beasts, but She Does Find Herself

by Weathermanon November 21, 2016
How does one go about reviewing a movie like Finding Dory? It’s essentially bullet proof. Whether it’s the next Citizen Kane or the next Plan 9 From Outer Space, it would still be a runaway hit because these days, Disney is almost that good (even if The Good Dinosaur was a bit of a miss, […]
D-Frag

Review: “D-Frag!” – Likable High School Hijinks

by Weathermanon July 8, 2016
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: delinquent high school kid, gaggle of weird girls, club room, etc etc etc. Yes, you have heard this story before, very likely a lot of times, so how does one make a show like this stick out? Do it well. D-Frag is certainly a little cliche, but it […]

Zootopia

Review: “Zootopia” on Blu-Ray – Happily Hopping Home

by Weathermanon June 13, 2016
Zootopia is officially available for home release, which is really weird since it could still be found in theaters as of this disc’s street date. I doubt most of you really need me to tell you to buy it. Zootopia is certainly the most talked about animated movie of the year and maybe the most […]

Review: “The Good Dinosaur” – Pixar Made a Darn Good Movie

by Weathermanon November 30, 2015
2015 is certainly a banner year, gifting us with not one but two Pixar films, along with the rest of the year’s animated output. Inside/Out already conquered the box office over the summer, while Universal’s Minions and Sony’s Hotel Transylvania 2 also met with blockbuster ticket sales, so does that leave any room for Pixar’s […]
